The Lancang-Mekong Cooperation (LMC) framework was created in to promote Mekong cooperation at a subregional level, comprising the six countries along the Mekong River. What is remarkable about this grouping is the fact that it is a Mekong-only framework that Thailand has.   A new word-Lancang-Mekong River cooperation was added into the Chinese diplomatic dictionary last year. This morning, the Foreign Ministry website released the information that the first leaders' meeting on Lancang-Mekong River cooperation will be held in Sanya, Hainan Province. Compared with many serious diplomatic words, “Lancang-Mekong” is down-to-earth from the .

(20 percent) and Viet Nam (8 percent) (Table 1). The river basin can be divided into two parts: the Upper Basin in China (where the river is called Lancang) and the Lower Mekong Basin from Yunnan (China) downstream to the South China Sea. The main river in the Upper Basin flows for almost 2 km from its source in China near.

  From the Greater Mekong Subregion to the Mekong River Commission (with roots in the Mekong Committee), the US-driven Lower Mekong Initiative, and as of late the China-driven Lancang-Mekong Cooperation (to name but a few), the Mekong River has fired up the imagination of politicians in Thailand, Vietnam, Laos, Cambodia, China, Japan, Europe. The greater Mekong river system provides fish, water and fertilizer for 60 million Southeast Asians. In , the river went into fill mode much later than normal as a severe drought gripped the.

The planning, design, and construction of hydropower dams are occurring at a rapid pace in the Mekong/Lancang River Basin in Southeast Asia.

For years the river and its tributaries transported an average of million metric tons of sediment per year to the South China by: China naturally enjoys a certain advantage over the lower basin countries.

But the US-China rivalry over this issue started in April when Eyes on Earth Inc, a research and consulting company specialising in water, published its findings in a US-government funded study about the last year’s droughts in the Lower Mekong Basin countries which saw the water levels in the river receding to a assistance included the preparation of the Mekong/Lancang River Tourism Planning Study3 and the GMS: Mekong Tourism Development Project (MTDP)4 involving the development of 12 tourism-related infrastructure projects, pro-poor community-based tourism development, and subregional Mekong/ Lancang River Tourism Planning book.

China’s extensive damming of the upper Mekong River has reduced water flows, threatening downstream countries Cambodia and Vietnam with environmental harm and food shortages, said experts in advance of a summit meeting of the multilateral Mekong-Lancang.

The Mekong River, known as the Lancang in China, is the heart of mainland Southeast Asia. More than 60 million people depend on the river and. A view of the Mekong river bordering Thailand and Laos is seen from the Thai side in Nong Khai, Thailand, Octo Photo: Reuters BANGKOK — China is ready to share data on water flows into the Mekong River, a longstanding request of downstream Southeast Asian countries, a Thai foreign ministry official said on Friday.

Rising in southeastern Qinghai province, China, it flows. The Mekong, or Mekong River, is a trans-boundary river in Southeast is the world's twelfth longest river and the seventh longest in Asia. Its estimated length is 4, km (2, mi), and it drains an area ofkm 2 (, sq mi), discharging km 3 ( cu mi) of water annually.

From the Tibetan Plateau the river runs through China, Myanmar, Laos, Thailand, Cambodia, and Vietnam. The Lancang River lies upstream of the Lancang-Mekong River (Fig.

1a), and its mainstream is km Lancang River Basin (LRB) has an area of approximatelykm 2, which contributes to about 20% of the area and 16% of the runoff of the entire Lancang-Mekong River Basin (LMRB).The LRB spans latitudes from N33° to N21° and altitudes from m to m, with various climate.

China only accounts for 4 percent of the Lancang River. The Lancang River is in China. If we take the whole river, Lancang-Mekong, we account for less than 1 percent of the water consumption.

It’s a very small amount of water for the Chinese right now. The dam in the upstream, the major role of the dam for China, is for power, electric power. China is ready to share data on water flows into the Mekong River, a longstanding request of downstream Southeast Asian countries, a Thai foreign ministry official said today.
